What To Expect in an Alvin Brown Administration

The best way to evaluate a candidate is through a careful evaluation of his/her positions on the "issues".  Issues are delineated best in the position papers or platform statements all candidates prepare. For a more comprehensive picture of Alvin Brown's position on his key issues, check out his website at www.alvinformayor.

It's fair to say that few candidates consistently present their full platform or the details of their key issues every time they speak publicly.  Whether it's at a press conference, in a debate, at a fund-raiser or a constituent 'meet and greet', most candidates - or elected officials - often find it necessary to abbreviate, omit or otherwise limit the number of issues they reference or the degree of details they share.  To balance this reality, candidates rely on their prepared position papers to provide the details on their issues.

Democrats have a real shot at ending two decades of Republican domination of the mayor's office in Jacksonville.  Learn more about Alvin's plans for our city and our future.  Go to www.alvinformayor.

Then, remember to take 10 friends and family members to the polls and vote May 17 - or Early Vote between May 2 - May 15!

Stay On Top Of Things

Redistricting is a critical issue that warrants our attention and where needed, action.  Michigan's Black lawmakers take action into their own hands to ensure the redistricting process works the way it should to protect their gains.  Click here to read about their efforts.  Let's hope it doesn't come to that in Florida.

Victory Is In the Air!

Alvin Brown's upset victory over two formidable Republicans opponents to secure a run-off slot in the Jacksonville Mayoral race is a sign the times they-are-a-changing for the Democratic Party in Duval County.

With Moran out of the race, a significant Democratic voter advantage and the "night and day" distinctions between Mike Hogan and Alvin Brown, Democrats ought to win this election and win it big.  Said another way, if Democrats "choose" to win, then win we will.

Moderate Republicans and Democrats as well as Independents and NPA voters alike can find something to support in Brown.  If not - then no complaints about the ultra conservative era Hogan will usher in....starting with killing the green-shoots of rebirth emerging downtown!

Are The Repubilcans Serious?

Is there no end to bad ideas coming from the Republican leadership in Tallahassee?  Check out the latest proposal which is opposed by AARP-FL as evidenced in their e-mail blast below.

Then, go "early vote" in the Jacksonville Unitary elctions so we can send some Democrats to office in our city/county.
